Inspired by a fashion plate from 1922, Constance stands as a reminder of the fascination with Asian culture in the 1920s. This one-piece dress is constructed with an inner and outer dress connected at the neck and armholes. The black and white, deco cotton print, outer dress has black cotton broadcloth contrast at the base of the sleeves, sashes at the hip and framing the entire edges of the dress. The side of the outer dress from waist to hem is left open and held in place by the loose fitting sashes at the hip. The scooped neckline is split and bound in black broadcloth. The slash at the front is held closed with bar bell buttons.
The inner dress, stitched in contrasting black broadcloth, fits closely to the body and has a zipper at the side for ease of entry. The skirt tapers dramatically at the hem to accentuate the difference between the inner and outer dress. The inner dress skirt has a kick pleat in order to aid in mobility during wear.
